Sitting Room Pilates

I couldn’t make it over to Portlaoise this evening for Trilates with my club so instead opted for some Sitting Room Pilates with Benny. He’d been to a few of Lisa’s classes before, and I opened Youtube on my phone, so surely between us we could knock together an hour or so of core strengthening and flexibility improving exercises right?

Eh, not quite. After various versions of the plank and some ab stuff that was an amalgamation of what Benny remembered and what I remembered from some ju-jitsu classes from ages ago we ground to a halt. Roughly ten minutes or so in. We turned to Youtube then but due to a shoddy connection all we could get from that was a freeze frame of some lycra clad buttocks, which in fairness wasn’t bad, but it just wasn’t what we needed at that point in time. We stumbled along for another while, occasionally thinking of something new to do but mostly stopping for drink breaks and trying to figure out what to do next. Not ideal but then it was our first session, and you really don’t want to rush into these things.

Also, due to space limitations we had to put our mats right in front of the fire, so it was kind of like doing hot yoga. In a way.
